Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official April 2010 NPD Thread (Data for 4 wks ending May 2 in 3 hours)

Nice, Super Street Fighter IV (Xbox 360) sold 108.000 units and it is out of the top 10 which it means there is still hope for Monster Hunter 3 to match our numbers.

Wow those sales are bad.
Again this is i think now conclusive proof that both 360 and PS3 demand is starting to get to saturation point. Both are up on last year but both in comparison to the previous year PS3 is down on sales while 360 is only barely up by like 1k.

So what is interesting about those numbers is that in USA compared to the last time PS3 price cut the numbers are down this time. Which again throws further evidence into the fre to support Sources theory that this gen peak has gone.

PS3 did 159k last year, it's not down.........

 


No you misunderstood what i said. I said they are up over last years figures. But PS3 is down compared to it's 2008 figures while 360 only just beat it's 2008 numbers. 2008 was the year coming in off the back of the previous PS3 price cut. Which prooves that the price cut effect is/has started to now ware off.

you are trying way to hard.

 


There is no trying about it. What i have showed is that Aprill 2010 is not the best April in sales for PS3. It did better in 2008.

Now i don't know about you but coming in off the back off a price cut, new model, quality titles etc i find that surprising.

Taking out a margin of error of 10%, you'll have PS3 overtracked 8k, X360 overtracked 25K, Wii overtracked 47k.

The numbers in the OP have already been adjusted from NA to US.

I'm not doing Americas to US lol. That's just a standard margin of error loosely based on overall tracking accuracy. Should VGC numbers be below NPD ones I'd put in a 10% margin all the same.

That's kind of pointless since margin of error works both ways and for both sets of data.  You could just as easily say, for example, the Wii is overtracked by 146k by taking the upper limit of VGC and lower limit of NPD (assuming a 10% margin of error for them as well).



Wait... We have the Wii over NPD numbers by about 80k?

So on average we are ~20k over there tracking with Wii... Every week this month? That's pretty bad if we assume NPD are more accurate.

Lack of PS2 is... Disturbing ¬_¬

Yes you could but I opted to compare VGC numbers from a 10% margin perspective and compare with NPD using their numbers as absolute values since most people see NPD as more reliable than VGC.

Now, taking the margins of error for them both and extrapolating the numbers to see possible results over a large margin (like, say, 150 to 250k for X360), that would be pointless.
